Rockers Spring Social 2018

I've been attending the Rockers Spring Social, hosted by Ton Up Minneapolis, since it started in 2013.  It's always a great show if you're into cafe racers, vintage, and garage-built bikes.

This was the first year at the new venue, Red Stag Supper Club in downtown Minneapolis.  I've had dinner there quite a few times but was skeptical what it would be like for a motorcycle show.  As it turns out, the location worked out well and the weather was fantastic.  Billy got sunburn but I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to talk about that as he kept telling everyone over the loud speaker that he was aware.

I rode my '04 Sportster and parked across the street, but there was plenty of parking for both spectators and show bikes down the blocked-off side streets.

Food, beer, and live music are staples of the Spring Social and Crankshaft was outside doing his bluesy one-man-band thing.  I've seen him play quite a few motorcycle and car shows over the years and he's great.

I got there late but lucked out to see the elusive "First Thursday" himself just as Dan was about to take off.  It was a little surprising to see him on his Sporty and not his Royal Enfield, given it's a cafe racer show, but it was good to see him since he dropped off social media to focus on raising his 10-20 children.  Maybe he doesn't have that many but I can't keep track and I doubt he can either.  That's why he numbers instead of names them.

Nate has a killer van.

There were tons of cool bikes but I'll just focus on a few.

You probably know I love mini bikes so I'm a sucker for Harley Shortsters (X90).  This one was entered in the Italian category since it was made by Aermacchi..

Blue Cat had this sweet looking Suzuki.  It looks like it could go anywhere and be so much fun.

Brett's Sporty is always a favorite of mine.

Zack's pan is beautiful.

My favorite bike in the show was this Triumph.  It was awesome.

If you missed it, better luck next year!

Fuel Cleveland Official Pre-Party At Saucy Brew Works

Saucy Brew Works

In the past 10 years the craft brewery movement has taken over the greater Cleveland area by storm. Craft beer brewing hobbyists turning their passions into an opportunity of business and hopes to becoming a staple in the beer industry. Saucy Brew Works is the brain child of Brew Master Eric Anderson and Entrepreneur Brent Zimmerman and first opened it's doors a little over a year and a half ago on July 5th, 2017. Since opening it has been nothing but moving on up for this craft brewery, from partnering with the Cleveland Cavaliers, to opening a second location in Columbus, Ohio and even being distributed in multiple stores, Saucy Brew Works is a true success story. So, when Brent from Saucy Brew Works approached us and asked how they could get more involved with Fuel Cleveland we couldn't have been more excited.


Saucy Brew Works handcrafts all of their brilliant beers in house and have over 16 different flavors to try, there's literally something for everyone. Accompanied by a full bar for your other adult beverage needs, pizza to die for, and a humongous patio, this brewery is perfect to house the official Fuel Cleveland Pre-Party!

Saucy Brew Works is located on the corner of West 29th & Detroit Ave in Cleveland, OH. Their address, 2885 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113. We will be throwing a hell of a rager there on Friday July 26th from 8 pm to last call. Make sure to come out early and hang out all night with us! There is a ton of parking options to choose from and we are working on bike parking to be in the front, more details to come on that. We will see you there!
